The election of Donald Trump and appointment of bigoted white nationalists and union busters under his administration has caused a tremendous rise in hate crimes in the us. We believe this surge was emboldened by Trump’s fascist proposals including:

-The implementation of national “right to work” to bust unions

– Repealing overtime pay for millions of workers

– An attack on federal workers by imposing a hiring freeze

– Lowering minimum wage

-The deportation of 11 million immigrants

– The deportation of refugees

-The legalization of Discrimination against LGBTQI people

– The limitation of women’s rights to reproductive health care

– Environmentally destructive and racist energy planning

– A Ban Muslims from entering the US

We Must Show Trump And His Forces If They Attack Any, They Have To Deal With The Many!

We feel Women, LGBTQI People, Muslims, Disabled people, Immigrants, Refugees, Black, Brown, and Indigenous must unite as a working class to demand:

– Full rights and respect for all workers, regardless of ethnicity, national origin, gender identity, sexual preference, and religion.

– An End to Police Violence

– Good and Living wage jobs

– Affordable housing

– Quality healthcare

– Equal Rights for all people

– Green Jobs and Energy for all

Donald Trump is one person who may have billions, but we are millions.

The State policies that oppress us in many different ways are all enforced by the ruling class to divide and conquer but together we have the power to collectively withhold our labor to stop their corrupt agenda and run the society as we see fit.

We should unite our Family, Friends, Neighbors, and Coworkers to defend our communities! With the policies ahead of us it is a greater risk to do nothing. So join us to organize and take direct action in your workplace, school, and community to fight and build a future for the greater good of all.

At 7AM – The Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building (1301 Clay Street) will be shut down with a Mass Picket Line disrupting all ICE and Federal Opperations. We will be providing Breakfast for the working class and poor at the Picket Line.

At 9 AM – Oscar Grant Plaza (14th and Broadway) – We will be hosting an All Day Mutual Aid Fair with Teach-Ins/Workshops, Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner, A Free Store, Speakers, and Music.

At 12PM Noon – Labor March of the United Working Class – Organized and Unorganized workers in unity will be Gathering at Latham Square (Broadway and Telegraph) which is the site of the 1946 General Strike

An injury to one is an injury to all!

Official Resolution from the Alameda Labor Council calling on the Labor movement and working class to mobilize and take direct action on the week leading up to #J20:

“Resolution in Protest of the Inauguration of President Donald Trump

WHEREAS, the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States has sparked fear and anger in our community, especially among those most marginalized, including immigrants, Muslims, people of color, women, the disabled, and LGBTQ populations.

WHEREAS, the President Elect has publicly supported and endorsed anti-union policies including federal Right to Work laws and is considering appointing to his cabinet people with a track record of promoting such policies

WHEREAS, newly appointed Supreme Court Justices will swing the court to be more consistently anti-union WHEREAS, the privatization of Social Security and Medicare is likely to be pushed early in the Trump administration

WHEREAS, the diverse membership of the working class and of our unions includes populations that candidate Trump threatened with bigoted policies and hateful rhetoric

WHEREAS, that hateful rhetoric has already been seen in the form of an increase of hate crimes and violence against marginalized communities which overlap with our membership

WHEREAS, it is the obligation of organized labor to defend our members from attacks and promote an elevated and equal quality of life for all workers

WHEREAS, spontaneous demonstrations have erupted across the country immediately following the election of Donald Trump. Many organizations of students, labor, women, and various communities are continuing to plan massive protests including on Martin Luther King, Jr Day and culminating in action on the day of the inauguration of Donald Trump, January 20, 2017

WHEREAS, the day on which we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr who fought against racism and bigotry and championed the issues of the working class is just four days before the inauguration of Donald Trump.

WHEREAS, the power of organized labor is not reliant upon the occupant of any government office up to and including the office of President of the United States

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Alameda County Labor Council endorses and encourages all members to participate in the nationwide call for protest and actions beginning with those honoring and continuing the struggle of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr on his day, Monday, January 16 and culminating in a national day of action and protest and a reassertion of the power of organized labor on Friday January, 20, the day of the Inauguration of President Donald Trump

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Alameda County Labor Council encourages each of its affiliates to use the day of action on Friday, January 20 to display our power, unity and solidarity by planning an action around an existing labor dispute and inviting all of its members to participate as well as support their members who want to participate

BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED that we urge all affiliates to pass similar resolutions.”
